Big city greens follows mischievous and optimistic 10-year-old Cricket Green (Chris Houghton), who leaves the countryside for the big city with his completely displaced family – his older sister Tilly, his father Bill and Gramma Alice. The series is influenced by the childhood of the Houghton brothers who grew up in the small rural town of St. Johns, MI, with many locations and characters inspired by their family members and townspeople.

The voice cast of the Disney Television Animation series also includes Artemis Pebdani, Marieve Herington and Bob Joles.

Big city greens premiered in June 2018 and was ranked among the top five animated series in all of cable featuring kids and girls ages 6 to 11 for two consecutive quarters.

“We are delighted to deepen our relationship with Disney,” Chris and Shane Houghton said in a joint statement. “They have supported us a lot and our crazy ideas, and we are looking forward to continue to grow Big city greens as well as developing exciting new projects together.

The Houghton brothers, who created the comic Reed gunther and whose credits also include comics for The Simpsons, time for adventure and Peanuts, are replaced by the Gotham Group and lawyer Matthew Saver.
